Hello and welcome to this UCPlaces walking tour of London, where we step back in time to the bustling streets of the 19th century, vividly brought to life in Charles Dickens' timeless tale, "A Christmas Carol." As we traverse the cobblestone alleys and historic landmarks that inspired Dickens' classic, you'll find yourself immersed in the sights and sounds that shaped the world of Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, and Tiny Tim. From the foggy banks of the Thames to the lively markets of Camden Town, this journey will reveal the rich tapestry of Victorian London, shedding light on the social contrasts and festive spirit that underpin this beloved Christmas story. Join us as we uncover the magic and mystery of Dickensian London, a city where the past and present collide in a narrative of redemption, generosity, and holiday cheer. While our tour today will focus more on A Christmas Carol, we'll also be exploring and sprinkling in other places that have earmarks or Dicken's work and experience. My name is Dave, and I’m excited to be your co-pilot today as we immerse ourselves in the world of Charles Dickens' immortal classic. We will begin today in a very familiar place, Leadenhall Market, that has been seen in several films and novellas, including the Harry Potter series.

Another nearby option is Monument Station, which is served by the Circle and District lines. Both stations provide easy access to the historic Leadenhall Market, making it convenient for visitors exploring this iconic London landmark. Follow your GPS, and we will begin shortly.
